A main organization of our CSR activity is Discamino, an organization that helps people with disabilities to complete the Camino de Santiago. The award-winning founder Javier Pitillas, tireless in this activity, gave a lecture on the Camino as a personal achievement challenge, while sharing experiences with other people with disabilities, on the second day of the Feira da Saúde.
"Let no one tell you that you can't". With this phrase Javier Pitillas, promoter and head of DisCamino, sums up in the most accurate way possible, the organization's motivation, having already completed 93 trips on the Way to Santiago de Compostela. Those trips realized the dreams of almost half a thousand people with disabilities, certain they were up to the challenge, despite all the difficulties.
His testimony, on the second day of the Feira da Saúde, held by Asomega at Casa de Galicia in Madrid moved everyone present. For its simplicity, the clarity of his message ("The Camino is about enjoying and helping others enjoy, accompanying others in their happiness", he said), and the honesty he transmits.
His speech alluded to three videos in which he explained the evolution of DisCamino: the first one reflects the origin of the initiative, the second its concretion with the first route, and the third its development in recent years.
